Partial contents:
1. Introduction -- 2. Physical properties of lubricants -- 3. Lubricants and their composition -- 4. Hydrodynamic lubrication -- 5. Computational hydrodynamics -- 6. Hydrostatic lubrication --7. Elastohydrodynamic lubrication -- 8. Boundary and extreme pressure lubrication -- 9. Solid lubrication and surface treatments -- 10. Fundamentals of contact between solids -- 11. Abrasive, erosive and cavitation wear -- 12. Adhesion and adhesive wear -- 13. Corrosive and oxidative wear -- 14. Fatigue wear -- 15. Fretting and minor wear mechanisms -- 16. Wear of non-metallic materials -- 17. Future directions in tribology.
Summary: "Engineering Tribology, 4th Edition is an established introductory reference focusing on the key concepts and engineering implications of tribology. Taking an interdisciplinary view, the book brings together the relevant knowledge from different fields needed to achieve effective analysis and control of friction and wear. Updated to cover recent advances in tribology, this new edition includes new sections on ionic and mesogenic lubricants, surface texturing, and multiscale characterization of 3D surfaces and coatings. Current trends in nanotribology are discussed, such as those relating to lubricants, coatings and composites, and geotribology is introduced." -- Publisher's description.
